Title: Esperanza – Wheel of Hope  

Like a Kaleidoscope creating intriguing patterns of individual ornaments dependent on each other, my work reflects on human diversity and unity. The wheel with its inherent potential to move forward is a personal contemplation on the choices we all have on different levels to come together or disperse.  


Materials and Techniques: 

Norwegian wool (C1), merino, silk fibers, sequin fabric, CD offcuts, old iron wheel
